Victorian Collar, Then and Now.

Clothes, I love a great well structured piece of garment of any texture- plus I adore the stories behind the inspiration. ♥

The Victorian collar- Oh, how elegant and sophisticated one can look with all that ruffle! However, the true fashionistas in the 16th century wore ruffled collars to expose the structure of the neck and face. Ruffled collars were also a symbol of visual power, and luckily are indeed accessible now in the 21st century.
